found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
Charleston was born on approximately April 29 -May 5 as part of a litter of 7. Charleston looks like he might be a shepherd x with a small terrier but it is totally best guess at this point. Charleston weighed 11 on July 12 and we anticipate he will weigh about 25-30# as an adult, but since we could be off a bit on his birth date he could ultimately weigh a few pounds more or less. Charleston DOES look like a tiny German Shepherd, but he is too small for that and his cute little tail curls up over his back. He has a very wrinkly face like a Shar Pei.
Mom and puppies were picked up by animal control on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in South Dakota. He was immediately transferred to a foster home then transferred to PUP. The puppies arrived at PUP well nourished and well cared for. They have not had any health problems and have already received routine health care. Puppies are well socialized as they have been raised with their mom and the resident dog, a playful juvenile who loves nothing better than hanging out some wee ones. Recently Madison spent 2 weeks in a foster home with 2 small children and they made a weekend trip to the lake, which all of them loved. The children particularly liked Charleston because he was a hard player but when the play was done, he was eager to be held and cuddled. Charleston is mostly paper trained but still occasionally have accidents off the paper. He takes care of his business outside when taken out. He is ready to do serious house breaking.
The first 4 months are when puppy learns the social skills needed to be a skilled dog in dealing with other dogs and a good citizen in the human world. At 8 weeks, Charleston is at the ideal age to go to her new homes. Adopters should be committed to getting puppy into lots of new and different human social situations, hearing vacuums, trucks, and rattling garbage cans, meeting people who are clapping, laughing, with hats, tools, bikes and skate boards. AND puppy needs many opportunities to meet and greet dogs of all shapes, sizes and dispositions. Just sharing a home (which Charleston would LOVE) with another dog is not as much doggie socializing as puppy needs. If good doggie social skills are not learned and maintained during these early months, it will be very difficult to ever master them. Puppy play dates, trips to the pet store and puppy socialization classes and later, obedience classes and trips to the off leash park are ideal learning opportunities. As always, a tired dog is a good dog.
Charleston has been vet checked, wormed and had her first vaccinations. Charleston will need two more routine vaccinations and rabies vaccination at the owner’s expense. The adoption fee for each pup is $300 which includes the cost of the spay/neuter if it is done by the PUP vet. PUP does place dogs outside the metro area but a firm plan must be in place for the alter surgery. We do not ship.
